Abstract

A system may be customized by adding one or more software objects without detailed knowledge of the data model or the programming techniques used in the system. A user interface may be developed to guide the user to define a particular type of extension of one or more systems. The user-entered extension definition and a series of generic templates may be used to generate the particular objects to be added to each system.
